Calling all knitters/crocheters/seamstress/tailors

One of my closest and dearest friend just recently gave birth to a beautiful baby girl last week.  The little one is a month premature so complications here and there were inevitable.  The baby has been transfered to The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, or as we call it CHOP. She is doing well there and pretty soon she will be coming home!  
you can read her blog here.

Yesterday, during our regular knitting time, we briefly spoke about giving back to the community, as a group.  We thought that it would be a great idea to donate caps/hats and other baby items to CHOP in honor of the newest little bundle of joy.  It would mean a lot to my dear friend and it will mean a lot to all of us, sort of like a full circle moment. 

So I am putting this out to the universe and see if I get a response!  We are reaching out to the Central Jersey Community and all of the blogger community as well.   For Central Jersey, we will designate a drop off place where we will have a basket of some sort.  For the blogger community, if you live too far, we would love to receive  items in the mail as well.  If you would like to help us, The Bordentown Knitters, please email me here.  We will find out soon what they will accept as far as donations go.  
I will keep everyone posted!
